Baltimore school board approves charter school
Baltimore's school board approved the opening of a new charter school at its meeting last night, despite comments by the public questioning whether there should be a limit to the number of charters allowed in the city. After last night's approval, the city has 28 charter schools.
The Tunbridge Public Charter school, which is expected to open at 5500 York Road, will eventually have 400 students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. The curriculum and school plan will be based on that at the Afya Public Charter Middle School, a successful charter school in Baltimore.
The board also turned down an application for The Early Learning Development Academy, which had not yet secured a location.
